Ransomware attacks are on the rise – Is your resiliency plan ready to protect your organization?

12th November 2020 | 10:00am - 11:30am ET
How are you being resilient during times of disruption while breaking operational silos, identifying key risks, and adopting an orchestrated approach for threat management and recovery?

As new risks and opportunities emerge from digital and cloud transformation, rising cyber-attacks and ransomware are forcing every organization to re-assess their risk profiles, and adopt new approaches for operational resilience.

Whether you’re looking to enhance the protection of your business operations and critical data, or improve the way your business responds to threats, especially cyber-attacks, there’s never been a better time to review and realign your IT resilience program. Taking the necessary measures today can help ensure that any future incident won’t have a devastating effect on your enterprise.

Join IBM and a select group of your industry peers as we discuss minimizing risks and the cost of downtime, creating superior customer experiences, enhancing brand reputation and monetizing data in the digital era.
